Track Name: Hornets
The little voice inside your head say's it's time,
For you to say goodbye,
Don't you cry and never say die just pin yourself to the sky,
So when you can't sleep at night,
These little voices inside your mind will put you on trial,
For serious crimes.

So shield your eyes,
The light's.

Don't you worry,
No one blames you,

The fact of life is love has to die so don't cry,
Don't try to revive cos,
Nothing really matters now that you're gone.

So shield your eyes,
The lights.
Shield your eyes,
The lights delight's.
Track Name: Blackpool Twice
I don't want to feel like a spy,
Fighting for both sides,
But the look in your eyes just escaped me,
As we ran into the tide,
And I really tried to fight it,
But it just kept on fighting and the wind started whispering in my ear,
That I was hanging on the edge for dear life and I needed to let go to make it all dissapear.

But if I could have ever known,
That I would lead you out to sea on your own,
Then I would have brought a lifeboat,
I would have taken you home,
If I could see myself now,
Inside those ocean eyes,
Then I'd just dive right in,
And sink like a stone,
Because I'd die,
But my love,
Would survive.

Now I'm standing on a beach,
Staring at the sea,
But little did I know that you would stand there beside me,
The sun it shines across your face just like a memory,
And I reach for your hand but it's only me.

But if I could have ever known,
That I would lead you out to sea on your own,
Then I would have brought a lifeboat,
I would have taken you home,
If I could see myself now,
Inside those ocean eyes,
Then I'd just dive right in,
And sink like a stone,
Because I'd die,
But my love,
Would survive.
Track Name: Apart
She whispers in my ear it's like the room's getting small,
And I can't seem to feel anything at all,
She cries and reaches out but I still ignore,
Because I can't seem to take my eyes,
Off these bedroom wall's,
If only she could see that there was something to hide,
Then there wouldn't be a single thing left to haunt my mind,
But like the man that I am,
I am so damn high,
That I lie to myself and say that I'm still a good guy.

It's like she's scratching on the walls of a prison cell,
But she doesn't realise that she built this place herself,
And as she cries and she cries and she screams to the moon,
I can only shut my door because she takes up too much room,
But with my back against the door I still think to myself,
That I could not have done it better than someone else.

Such a beautiful thing,
I had done so well,
But I locked her inside my personal hell.
Track Name: Queen Bee
Don’t think that I would come around,
I can’t be just a hand-me-down,
To someone who would leave me swaying in the sun.
There’s more to this than meets the eye,
And I can see straight through your lies,
So I’ll play your games and hope you’re having fun.
Don’t think that I’d just knuckle down,
While you make that awful sound,
That lets me know that you’re happy with yourself,
Cos I would sooner see you cry,
Than see the angel in your eyes,
And let myself just slip in to your hell.

And the door,
Just,
Closes.

I’d sit and wait for the times to change,
But I don’t think you’re going to change,
I don’t think you’re ever going to spare me, love
You’re the queen bee and I’m your slave,
Overworked and underpaid,
But that's okay cos I know you’re not so tough.

But I don’t want you to ignore me,
I am just a story,
I am just a joke that you tell to your friends,
I came here to remind you,
That I would never find you,
Cos’ it’s all been a joke in your head.

So no,
Dice,
Sweetie.

I’d sit and wait for the times to change,
But I don’t think you’re going to change,
I don’t think you’re ever going to spare me, love
You’re the queen bee and I’m your slave,
Overworked and underpaid,
But that's okay cos I know you’re not so tough.
Track Name: Penguin
Let me be your guide,
Through these darkest nights,
And settle in the bloom,
As our shadows, dance across the room.

If only you could be my penguin,
You know they stay together till the day they die?
Sit down lady stop and smell the flowers,
If I told you that I’d keep you safe then I lied,

These warm and gentle smiles,
They really stay with you a while,
But when it’s time to say goodbye,
My eyes begin to cry.

If only we could seek the shelter,
And hide above the safety of the sun,
Then there would be no room for us in heaven,
But me and you would still feel like we've won.

Won’t you come back?
Save me from myself.

And sometimes he just wakes up thinking about it,
He said he hopes they treat you better than he did,
And he wanted me to tell you something that he can’t,
That the love is dead so he has to let you live,
And if only you could be my penguin,
You know they stay together until the day they die?
So I just grab my chest and with a tear I tell her,
That if I said I didn't love you then I lied.
Track Name: Daydreams
Break it down,
Build it up again,
What have you done to my family?
You look like a shark fin in the halls of distress,
With your pretty blue fairy lights and pretty blue dress,
But what do I look like at quarter to three?

Tap my shoulder,
Let me know,
If he looks like,
He's about to blow,
Because you look like and alien with a mobile phone,
But you've got no signal and you cant phone home,
One more serenade and I'll have to go.

So tear out my eyes,
Sew up my mouth,
A glass of wine with the beautiful south,
You're so easy,
Just to please me,
The whole world could end but you wouldn't see me,
It hurts to breathe,
It hurts to speak,
My blood is boiling as my knees turn weak,
Bur you're so easy,
Just to please me,
The whole world could end but you wouldn't see me.

You feel that sting big boy?
That's pride fucking with you,
One more step and you'll feel it,
Deep within your bones,
But do you feel far away?
Do you feel so betrayed?
Why do you feel so far from home?

So tear out my eyes,
Sew up my mouth,
A glass of wine with the beautiful south,
You're so easy,
Just to please me,
The whole world could end but you wouldn't see me,
It hurts to breathe,
It hurts to speak,
My blood is boiling as my knees turn weak,
Bur you're so easy,
Just to please me,
The whole world could end but you wouldn't see me.
